Saint Croix Sourdough French Bread Machine Mix

Saint Croix Sourdough French Bread Machine Mix

Saint Gilles Croix de Vie is a resort town in the west of France.  With roots back to the ninth century, this sleepy fishing village has parlayed its clear waters, sandy beaches, and mild climate into a destination of tourists.  But it still has its old world charm and great food including rustic sourdough bread's. 

This is an authentic French sourdough bread.  With a climate similar to San Francisco, Saint Croix sourdough has a tang similar to the famed bread's of San Francisco but with a touch of stone ground whole wheat flour it is more rustic--much like a peasant sourdough with a delightful chewy crust and a creamy, light brown interior with tiny flecks of bran. 

If you are a connoisseur of fine sourdough bread, you'll love this French sourdough.  

This package contains:

  • One sourdough bread mix that makes a large loaf--approximately two pounds.
  • An SAF gourmet yeast packet.  You add only water.
  • Directions and tips for perfect bread.  

Editors note:  This is a sourdough bread, not a French bread.  It is a made with a mixture of white flours and stone ground wheat flour.  The white flour dominates so it is light and moist.

Add this to your cart and get ready for some incredible sourdough bread.

For a crusty bread: 
This sourdough bread naturally forms a more chewy crust than other mixes and a ""medium"" crust setting will be adequate in most bread machines.  To maintain a chewy crust, store your bread in a paper bag, not plastic.  (In plastic, the bread sweats and softens the outer crust.)

If you bake it in your oven:  In your bread machine, this mix forms a very moist dough ball--too sticky to handle.  You'll want to reduce the water by a couple tablespoons.  You can make a wonderful sourdough bread in your oven but it takes a little patience.   With less water, this is a slow riser.  Allow at least a couple hours for it to rise on your counter.


If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical.  Please use a thermometer to measure water at exactly 80 degrees.  A ten-degree difference in water temperature can double the growth rate of the yeast.  These bread mixes are satisfaction guaranteed when you use a thermometer.

Ingredients: Enriched wheat flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid), whole wheat flour, sourdough base (wheat flour, salt, fumaric acid.  Contains 2% or less of diacetyl tartaric acid esters of monodiglycerides (datam), soy oil, lactic acid, acetic acid, enyzeme, L. cysteine, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide (ADA)), sugar, and milk (dry milk solids). This product contains wheat, soy, and dairy products and may contain traces of eggs, peanuts, or tree nuts.
